    Good news, finally some competition to uber.

    European ride-sharing company Taxify is ready to take on Uber in Australia, launching in Sydney this week with 4000 drivers already signed up.

    The company pledges to give a greater return of profits back to drivers, taking only a 15 per cent commission compared with Uber's cut of about 25 per cent, while also charging riders less for the service. In its first month of operation, it will offer riders a 50 per cent fare discount.

    Founded in 2013 by then 19-year-old Estonian Markus Villig, Taxify is set to hit $US1 billion in turnover in 2018 and is already the leading player in a number of European and African countries.
